Formula 24 Fundraiser- Bambou Restaurant

On Thursday 17th September a group of staff and pupils from Ballyclare Secondary School ran a fundraising night in the Bambou restaurant, Templepatrick.The purpose of this event was to raise money for the upcoming trip to Rockingham Speedway in England. The students, under the team name Forget Fossil, designed and built an electric Kit-car which competed in the Green-power regional final at Nutts Corners Race Track in May. The aim of the competition was to get the Kit-car to travel as far as possible in ninety minutes. The team performed extremely well and came away with three individual awards including the fastest lap and third place.  They are now preparing to take part in the National Final in October and thanks to an excellent night in the Bambou, raising over £1000, the pupils are hoping to build upon their existing achievements. The school would like to thank all the staff, pupils, parents and sponsors who attended the evening and also to all those who generously supplied raffle prizes.
